Cholera and TB spread from poor biomedical waste management #Kenya #health #disease #contagious #medicine #waste

6 USD / 20 Minutes

A cholera outbreak in Kiruguya, rising incidence of hospital-transmitted TB and Hepatitis-B are the results of poor biomedical waste management practices. It's not only a question of latex gloves, but clean-up protocol, handling and disposal of waste. Healthy children are examined and vaccinated on infected surfaces. Cleaners with minimal training are handling and transmitting preventable illnesses. My work reflects a multi-year public health study for Kenyatta University.

My Philosophy

Kenya is changing fast, becoming wealthier, more populous, more diverse, more mobile. We need ideas that keep up with our changes. But the challenge seems to be knowing which methods to emulate and import, and which methods must be home-grown.
